Product Description

This is a unique opportunity:

Before we actually released the Deimel Firestar 169 two years ago, we started off with this prototype to proof the half guard idea of the original Firebird design embedded into the curvature of our Deimel Firestar body shape. We like it a lot! What lasts a long time will finally be good … We finally assembled the Deimel Firestar #169 Prototype to our very liking and it is now for immediate sale.  

With an overall weight of 2.65 kg / 5.83 lb., the guitar features the amazing JM-HC Diamond HB’s made by Curtis Novak. Constructed out of 2 gold foil coils side by side, the result is a very beefy but airy sound, still so transparent that even finger noises on the bass strings get transferred. A very articulated but broadly useful sound on both positions! To get even more variety, we added a serial/parallel sound switch to each pickup. A general piezo disc is glued into the body, which can be alternatively added to everything. By turning down the volume to 8, the HB’s are blended out and even more piezo is noticeable. 

Another little tone twist can be realized by our new tone knob which is called »treble cut/bass cut blender«. It is a 500k stereo pot with a middle detent, allowing for cutting treble as usual on turning downside and cutting bass on turning it upside from the center. This literally gives you many passive tone shaping options, all hidden in one pot. 

Sales price is 3800 € (instead of 4460 € list price) plus 19 % German VAT if applicable and shipping.
